EU Energy Law and Policy: a South European Perspective

Meeting the Challenges of a Low Carbon Economy

Edited by: Antonis Metaxas, Leigh Hancher

This book provides insight into some of the most significant issues presented at the Florence School of Regulation and Hellenic Energy Regulation Institute's 2016 joint conference on European energy law and policy. The conference brought together over 200 experts, including scholars, leading academics in EU law, and key representatives from industry and energy institutions, alongside over 13,000 online viewers. The purpose of the conference was to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current status of the European and Greek energy sector, and the issues it faces, from both a legal and economic perspective. The discussions included: an assessment of the low carbon challenges for Europe; the future of renewable energy systems and support mechanisms; electricity market design; and the current regulatory framework of the gas and electricity markets in Greece. Alongside these topics were in-depth analyses of the various complex issues surrounding cross-border gas construction projects, exploring inter-governmental agreements, and whether EU law can be applied to third countries. Finally, the discussions turned to the future role of Distribution System Operators, both in their function as independent supervisors of the electricity market and their evolving relationship with the Transmission System Operators.
